Are Parasite Eve 1 and 2 separate stories?

PE2 is a crappy RE clone. The first one has much better gameplay with an RPG style battle system.

Yeah, I'm going to do that, but I've got to find a reliable site to buy points from.

I usually use this http://www.maximuscards.com/. They usually send the e-mial instantly so you can use it right away (if you use credit card or pay pal, they have other payment methods that might take a few hours or day review before they send you a code eg google checkout). They do charge premium so getting the $50 pack is best bang for buck, plus it's worth paying $5-8 little extra to get games that would not normally be available to you.

plus isn't the Australian dollar a bit stronger then the American, so that premium charge might only be nothing to $2 due to currency exchange anyway.

Hey thanks for that Xechs. Just what I was looking for. I'll get PE1 and Xenogears, and maybe a few more NTSC only RPGs.

Not sure how people think they can get away with saying that they aren't connected at all, when PEII is in fact a direct sequel to the first game.

Sure, you are fighting completely different enemies, and basically everything about the story and characters has changed, but PE and PEII are still very much connected in the same story arc.

Hell, I think even The 3rd Birthday is technically included in that story arc, but no one takes it seriously since it's a Toriyama game.

I agree with the sentiment that the first game is better though. The first game is several times better than the second.

Thanks everyone for helping out. I just bought PE1 and Xenogears. Damn PSX graphics are sexy. I'm having a nostalgia overload.
